BENEFITING: RALLY FOUNDATION.ORG
I am doing everything I can to raise funds for children's cancer research with the Rally Foundation. http://rallyfoundation.org/index.php/rally/home/ This incredible organization provides research grants today to save lives tomorrow. 93 cents of each dollar donated goes DIRECTLY TO RESEARCH. Rally funds research nationwide, but my efforts support two wonderful hospital in my area-Seattle Children's Hospital and Mary Bridge Children's Hospital. I raised $1,400 in donations to do this year's Seattle Rock and Roll Half-marathon, and I am already signed up to do the Disney World Half-marathon in January 2012, and the Portland Rock and Roll Half-marathon in May 2012. My goal for these two events is $3,000.00 so I am starting my fundraising efforts early.
The black and white photo is my Rally Kid, Mia, pictured with her twin. She has recently completed a bone marrow transplant courtesy of her brother and we are wishing the two of them and their family all the best!
If you are one of the first 100 people to donate $5.00 to Rally, I will send a Macy's Shop for a Cause pass to the address you provide to Rally Foundation. If you want more than 1 pass so you can share with friends or family, message me with the total number needed-1 pass for each $5 you donate. This pass will get you 25% off of most purchases nationwide or online on August 27, 2011. (Some exclusions do apply and items such as electronics and mattresses are 10% off.) You can message me on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/mreedgelstin for details.
